Build a Tallneck with the Horizon Forbidden West Lego set

The first-ever Horizon Forbidden West Lego set is on the way. The kit features a model of a Tallneck, a machine from the Horizon universe that players can scale to see nearby areas. The set is the result of a collaboration between Lego and Guerrilla Games and features a whopping 1,222 pieces total. It will release in May of this year and will retail for $80.

In a press release, Lego shared that the Tallneck model will be over 13.5 inches high and nine inches wide, making it over a foot tall. Included in the box are all the components needed to build the Tallneck, as well a new head block and weapon for main character Aloy and a small model of the Watcher reconnaissance machine.

The kit also includes a few environmental details around its base, including a buildable tree, grass, and a rusty stoplight, enabling players to model their build after Horizon Forbidden West‘s lush world. According to Isaac Snyder, a designer at Lego, the model incorporates “references to all the most iconic aspects of Horizon Forbidden West, from incredible machines, mysterious ruins, unique tribes, and stunning scenery.”

Horizon Forbidden West launches this Friday for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. In our review, we praised the game for its strong combat and interesting world, as well as its beautiful visuals. While it does have a few missteps, it’s still a shining example of Sony’s first-party prowess. The Lego kit looks to take everything that players love about the world of  Horizon and allow them to build it themselves, brick by brick.

Horizon story explained: Everything you should know about Aloy’s journey so far
horizon zero dawn the frozen wild review campfire

After making almost nothing besides FPS titles in the Killzone series, it was seen as a major risk for Guerrilla Games to suddenly shift gears and announce they were making an open-world, third-person action RPG. Set in a post-apocalypse where humans are besieged by wild robots that very closely resemble dinosaurs and other wildlife, Horizon Zero Dawn turned out to be a massive hit in a year full of other excellent games to compete with. Being a new IP, it had a lot of work to do between establishing a new world, characters, gameplay mechanics, and more.

Horizon Zero Dawn's story is broken into two major components: There are the events that lead up to the world becoming the way it is in the game and the actual plot revolving around protagonist Aloy and her quest. Keeping everything straight is complicated on its own, but if you missed some key audio logs, got distracted by all the extra activities to do in the open world, or just forgot the important beats over the years, it might be confusing by the time you get to Horizon Forbidden West. And if you're confused starting that game, you will be totally lost by the end of it, so let's set the record straight by explaining the entire story of Horizon so far.

After years of delays, rumors, and an early leak, Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver finally revealed Dead Island 2 to the masses at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022. The trailer reintroduced us to the game after eight years, highlighting all of the wild character builds players can create and defeat hordes of zombies with. The game also got a February 3, 2023, release date, so the wait for Dead Island 2 won't be much longer.

Like the original, Dead Island 2 takes place in a tourist-heavy location. However, now we've gone from a vacation island to the City of Angels, Los Angeles. The trailer showed how players can explore and kill zombies in the various locales that Los Angeles has to offer. These areas range from high-class Beverly Hills neighborhoods to the sandy shores of Venice Beach. Six playable characters can be used to explore these different locations, and each can be highly customized to fit anyone's liking. These characters, called "Slayers," have fully customizable abilities that can be accessed using a brand-new skill system.
